Hello.

I have a Nissan Serena. This car has failed on me at the gas station when I was refilling the fuel. It was driving fine, and when I switched it off, it did restart, but couldn't rev past 2000 rpm.

I scanned it and it gave the code of Mass air flow meter which I changed with another one and it didn't change a thing.
I then left and tried it the next day, there was no code, and the vehicle only cranked, but this time the car wouldn't start.

*I then checked and lifted the whole injector rail, and cranked, and all injectors sprayed on their on time.
*I checked the spark plugs, and it plug sparked and that proves the coils and spark plugs are fine.
*I redid the timing marks as well
*The fuel pressure is good, and I even changed the fuel filter and pump.

All the above has been done, and the vehicle still can't start.

Please advise

Welcome to 2CarPros!

It sounds like you've covered all the basics. I know you've replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump. Any chance you pulled a fuel sample and closely examined it? It seems very coincidental that the engine ran fine until you filled it with a new batch of fuel. I would try starting it with an auxiliary fuel source such as starting fluid. If you can get it to start by doing that, there's a very good chance the "fresh" fuel you purchased is no good.
